PAUL HEYSE. Autograph Letter signed: "Dr. Paul Heyse", 1 p, 5¼x8¼. Seeburg Pension (inn), near Lucerne, Switzerland, 1869 August 14. To "My dear Sir" (obviously an editor). In German, translated in full: "The Swiss friend on whose authority I yesterday changed some of the local color of the 'lost son,' withdraws today a correction, which he had noted: confused with the Zürcher Town History, he was wrong in his interpretation of the position of the Bern Wife of Rank so that I must ask you to leave the former version wherever I had newly corrected wife of rank or just wife and reinstate that part (right at the first visit of the man at the house of Mrs. Amthor), where I speak about his position etc. in town and where my friend had suggested less emphasis. However, I would like you to change the part where Mrs. Amthor says 'I would give 500 Gulden, if the pubs on the island would be closed' - to read instead 500 gulden hundred Kronen. With kind regards, Sincerely." Heyse (1830-1914), an author of novels, plays, short stories and poems, was the first German to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature (1910) for his contribution to the development of the modern psychological novella. He headed a circle of writers in Munich who opposed the trend toward realism in literature. Ink note in upper left (unknown hand). Docketed on verso. Vertical fold crosses "D" in "Dr." Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
